Dee’s Key Notes (for August)

A few notes from your real estate agent and friend, Dee.

Fun stuff to do around Jax 

Starting tonight and through the weekend, here are a few fun things to do: Night at the ZooRiverside Arts Market, or Shrek the Musical.  

School’s in!

School starts on Monday, August 12. Here is the 2019-2020 school calendar for Duval or the 2019-2020 school calendar for St Johns.  

Liven up your bathroom for less 

Bathroom remodels can cost upwards of $10,000. But you can still get a fresh look at a fraction of the cost. Here are a few money-saving tips and tricks: 

  • Keep the same layout. This will save you moola by not moving water lines for tubs, vanities, or toilets. 
  • Do your own tile work. DIY tiling your own floor and shower can be satisfying—and save you bucks.
  • Go garage sale-ing. Yes, you can find some great accessories at garage sales.
  • Look for leftovers. Stone yards, tile/flooring shops, contractors—they may all have leftovers you can purchase or even have. That cool oyster-colored countertop remnant might work perfectly for your new vanity and save you a lot of clams!

My new favorite breakfast snack?

Key lime pie. Well, okay, it’s not actually key lime pie, but it’s close! Here’s my secret recipe: 

  • 1 Key Lime Chobani Blended Greek Yogurt 
  • 1 pack (4 biscuits) of belVita Toasted Coconut Breakfast Biscuits.
  • Dip and eat yogurt with your biscuits, or just crumble and pour them into your yogurt and eat with a spoon. Both ways are delicious—especially if you’re a fanatic for key lime pie!  

Dwell well,
